    It all started 3 years ago when i was 15 years old. I noticed, that there’s too many blackheads and pimples on my face. I started to wash my face more frequently, but it had no use, my acne just got worse. Than my mom bought me some garnier cleanser. I started using this cleanser and it looked like it really works.
